Fantastic, as usual for P&F. I think it's important to revisit these shows now and again so they don't disappear into the unlistened-to archives of time; there's so much great music here.

Highlights abound; all of set 1 rocks, but the real goods start with that New Speedway > Hard Rain. The latter is really quite a surprise - listen to Jackie Greene handle the final verse of the song, esp. those here grumbling about the vocals in general. Too many times Dylan songs are played as a matter of course by too many bands (incl. Dylan himself); here they make this old classic sound brand-new.

Unbroken Chain has a jam in the middle that absolutely, SERIOUSLY *commands* your attention, and all that Telstar stuff takes us out to the galaxy's edge (but ZERO stars for that dude who insists on talking through the damned thing - goes to show that no matter how good taping technology gets, you still can't account for those with serious attention-span deficits.)

Good times that night and good times now.
Cumberland and New Speedway are standouts for me.
Enjoy it.

this show was so dope its by far the best phil show ive seen in recent years and yes jackie green(e) fucking killed he is more than just a breath of fresh air this kid sounds like he played with the dead 20 years ago and has been doing so ever since. great harmonics great vocals certainly improved by phil too. the jackie song on here, Just Wandering is absoloutly sick and you can hear the new melodic sound of the band on the Wheel and Uncle Johns. i mean A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall are you kidding me it was so fucking sick cant wait for Bonnaroo!

Wow, lotsa downloads of my recording. Thanks for the Kudos on it and had a blast going to Langerado for Sunday Only.... The Meters rocked, Mule was kicking and PLF was well rested full of energy set 1 and laid back but well played set 2.....
PLF lineup is gelling quite nicely, had a chance to see 2 shows at the Nokia Theatre last November and hopefully will get to see them a few times this summer.!!
Enjoy and Spread the Tunes.
Thanks again Alex for the upload, You Rock.!!

this was the only way to wrap up an awesome weekend in the swamp. thanks to Cloud 9 and the Madison House folks for laying down an unforgettable festival/lineup. this particular set would have been spectacular, 'cept for some of the zombies that Phil attracts. Did get to witness a hippie fight. Though it was a detraction, it was entertaining none the less. Thanks for the party Phil.

Subject: Incredible show
These guys keep it up they are going to make a legacy of their own...never mind just attempting to preach back moments from the Dead. Incredible sound and one hell of a show. Can't get enough of Phil these days.
Reviewer: RamblingRose - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 20, 2008
Subject: This show ROCKED!
If you listen to nothing else, listen to the Viola Lee Blues. I have never heard it played better ever ever anywhere. This line up is SMOKIN folks. I was at the Red Rocks show last Sept. and they rocked so hard there - same line up. At Langerado Phil's was the last show and I was dead on my feet after 4 days of camping in cow shit in horrible weather of every sort (except snow and ice). We all were. We didn't deserve a second encore cuz we were too wiped to call for one. Yet the musicianship and power and energy of this show was just unreal. This line up has jelled as a band to the extent that I just can't imagine they could have played any better. Thank you for uploading this show!

Subject: Phil N Phrends sound better than ever
I thought the lineup with Warren Haynes and Jimmy Herring could not be topped from early 2000, but this band Phil has now is unreal. The Dylan tune, "Hard Rain is Gonna Fall" is great along with all the others!!! Rock On Phil, how bout a summer tour along with the Festivals????
Reviewer: sm0key42o8 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 16, 2008
Subject: Jackie Greene ok???
Jackie can run circles around lil bobby weir, not to mention his voice-he sings in the same key as Jerry, whats not to like about the guy. Obv. you have not taken the time to see him live. It seems like all the guys are in a groove. I havent seen a band have so much fun on stage. I saw the 10-13-08 in VA and they didnt even leave the stage for set break or for the encore. And you have to love the pool of songs that the setlist have been pulling from-some really solid classic.

Good recording also.

I think Phils voice has gotten better this past year, and who cares Its F##kin Phil Im just glad he,s out there at 68 years old and still rippin shit up. If you want killer vocals go see Van Halen.

Phil's voice is Phil's voice. Like it or not. I hear there's a new Osmond's site up, Mr. Grumble Guts. They all sing on key and they have those groovy outfits too. Don't let the door hit ya' on the ass...

An automatic 5 stars just to equalize Gloomy Gus McFlat Top.

Happy birthday, Mr. Lesh!

Subject: New vocalist?
This is Phil Lesh & Friends. You expect amazing vocals? Which Phil Lesh have you been listening to sing all these years? Besides, this band has been RIPPING IT UP since September! This is a great performance and a very solid recording. Jackie Green is an incredibly talented breath of fresh air and if you don't think so, go and listen to the Nokia run that's also on this site. Just listen :)

Reviewer: supahj - favoritefavorite - March 15, 2008
Subject: Good jams, flat vocals
Id love to see this band adda really good vocalist. The jams are good and Phils playing is second to none. His vocals just take me out of the game so much though-hes just flat- it doesnt sound good its just too much.

Jackie Green(e?) is ok but nothing to write home about.

Subject: who's the guy with the haircut?
who's that guy with the haircut??"

jackie green, folks!!
kept hearing that around the crowd. everyone was obviously impressed.

the band was tight, jazzy, and well rested. the 30 minute headcount commercial in between sets was really offputting, though, and i think made people lose interest. the second set was amazing, but it didn't get the energy from the crowd it deserved.

*a mellow help on the way > an awesome slipknot really got the juices flowing. sage-burning guy was spinning really really fast.

*golden road made my night. nuff said

*i'm sad casey jones didn't get the crowd going enough to keep the house lights off. buzzkill. i still blame the commercial.

great sound quality... thanks Larry!

i have to amend my comment on the headcount commercial (and it WAS a commercial). people in the jam band community are ambivalent about politics, but no more than the rest of the general population. in fact, i would wager that jammers and heads probably feel MORE passionately about politics than the general populace. it's just that when you go to see a phil show, you want to be rocked... though my face was surely stolen, the 30 minute interlude took something away from the entire experience.

it could have just been the drugs, though...

love you guys!

Subject: Great show!
The whole show was really great except for the trip into outerspace. That really went on for far too long. Viola Lee and Golden Road were great. The Headcount movie in between sets was not bad at all. I really pisses me off that people in jam band community are so passive about voting/politics.
Reviewer: Scott420DL - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 14, 2008
Subject: Once again Phil and Friends delivers the goods
Well I wasn't at Langerado for the full 4 days as many people were, but I was luck enough to be there Sunday to see Gov't Mule and of course Phil. I was awestruck from the moment the lights went down. Jackie Green tore it up on guitar, especially in the second set during Golden Road and Viola Lee Blues. And when they broke into Unbroken Chain, I about fell over. FANTASTIC! The crowd energy was a little subdued, probably just from sheer exhaustion.

I think my only disappointment was that I expected Phil to invite some "special guests". Warren Haynes for one. Unfortunately that never came to fruition. Still the show was amazing from start to finish. Every song was tight. The band appeared to be enjoying themselves. I also liked the fact that no matter where I was in the crowd, I was always in the Phil Zone.
